does not depend on how it's executed.

Assuming your app is a native app (i.e. the answer to the above is 'no')
then even if your app is run from a MSYS sh.exe it should still get a
copy of PATH that uses colons, ...

If you really meant what this says, then it's incorrect; [snip]

Right. Reading it myself, I think that must have been a typo. Replace 'colon' with 'semicolon' and it is correct AFAIK.

You are in a dark room. The only exit is a door to the east.
I don't know which door you mean.
It's locked.
